National Grandparents Day is a holiday celebrated in the US on the first Sunday after Labor Day (September 9 in 2018) and on various days of the year in many other countries. While many people have an idea of grandparents who spoil their grandkids and are available to babysit at a moment's notice, it's not always all snickerdoodles and custom-knitted afghans.

Which of these grandparents is most like your real grandparents?

Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham (Maggie Smith).......My Mom's side (without the cash) But just as snobbish!
Daisy "Granny" Moses (Irene Ryan).... My Dad's side.......Cooked from Scratch.. Made quilts..Canary Breeder......Ma to me. Passed in 1975....I miss her. Best Blueberry pie ever. Would pick wild spinach from the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge. Non gritty...the best.

Hm. Time is running out. Maybe this could be revised and re-pushed, a year from now?

How do holiday polls ordinarily work? Wouldn't it be ideal for the to go live a three to seven days ahead of the big event?

Mostly they run on the day of, but sometimes a few days before or after. Or the admins could ask me to remove the grandparents day info so it could run later.

My grandmother and I. if you look closely you can see some little blue knitted things on our heads. Those are clothes she knitted for my Barbie. We were wearing them as hats. :)



So, see my awesome Road Runner t-shirt!

As a child I saw the animated Heidi in my grandparents' home and her grandpa reminded me of mine (I assume the character is similar in the movie). A distrustful and emotionally secluded man who only showed a gentler side in special moments or to certain people - in fact I think I'm the only one he was really friendly with, at least in a long time. He claimed that I smiled at him at the age of just a few days.
